Indie Hacking with Postgraphile Thomas Ankcorn August 2019
Sometimes I get jealous of the speed people can build complex apps with things like laravel/rails. Node is a great run time but it is arguably a more complex choice for your tech stack, there is no standout MVC framework that does it all for you, instead, there are lots of small specialised tools. I want to talk about one of those. It’s called Postgraphile. It lets you generate a GraphQL API from a schema in a Postgres database. By writing just a little SQL you can create an application that would take a long time to create normally!
I'm going to show you how you can use it to build a meetup.com clone complete with JWT based authentication, real-time meetup ratings, and role-based access control.
